Listen: National Parks Service Tells Group To Remove "No" Sign From Sligo Mountain.

: 05/17/2018 - 17:06

A group in favour of retention of the 8th Amendment, who put a giant "NO" sign on Ben Bulben mountain in Sligo, have been told to take it down by the National Parks and Wildlife Service.

They say putting the sign up in an area of "special conservation" is "insensitive" and "incompatible" with the surroundings.

The Sligo for NO campaign erected the sign early this morning, describing it as a "cry from the mountain to save Ireland's babies".

These locals have told Ocean FM that the group has gone too far:
